Quality Web Hosting

There are various kinds of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites in regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper web hosting service for your web site, you need to judge what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be met.

The most relevant choice for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per customer considerably. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will include the specs your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Lord Griffin IT Solutions, offer a vast selection of web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a less powerful account and you need more system resources, moving to a high-end package involves just a click.

Shared website hosting - Weak Points

A weakness of the shared hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Given web sites, especially web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not require full root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that demand server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually offer full root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server packages involve different features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual web server hosting package includes guaranteed data space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short intervals of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Yet, some web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform dedicated web server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Prior To Choosing...

Settling on the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper work of a web portal. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, appraise carefully all the prerequisites for the web portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-based. And if you are still unsure which one is the best web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to help you and answer all your questions.
